a new source for this show showed up at the archive the other day. I believe a new matrix using this source is here as well.

Love that the opened with the Crazy Fingers. Always thought it took some kind chutzpah to open shows with songs no one ever heard. Especially one that doesn't really sound like anything they had previously performed. Same opening 2-26-77 with Terrapin. That must have been a mind blowing experience for the folks in the crowd.

Oops, SkyDawg pointed out this source the other day.

Thanks for noticing elbow. I couldn't believe nobody checked out these new sources or commented on them. The new sources are a major upgrade of an excellent show from a year that sported only 4 shows, all of them excellent.

Now that's doing your homework!

You get a frickin Gold Star.

Just like the two snipers that dropped in The Mog with certain death awaiting them. If only they had more ammo. Nonetheless, we, Durant, and all, certainly owe them their medals of honor.

OK, sorry for that diversion, but you have to admit those two fellows deserve our thanks.
